, it was interesting to me when newt gingrich who did close government in the '90s, newt gingrich predicted that the republicans were in on this. watch this. >> everybody's now talking here comes the debt ceiling. i think that's frankly a dead loser. because in the end you know it's going to happen. the whole financial system is going to say this will be a gigantic problem. you can't be responsible. and they'll cave. >> when you have newt gingrich saying they'll cave. and newt gingrich did this, i mean, you really have to question how the republicans even took this long to start equivocating on what they're going to do. >> i think everything that you've played so far and joan's comments are convincing that the leadership is wavering. and when politicians begin to waver, that usually means they're not holding as firm as they suggest. but i will say this. there's not one monolithic republican out there. there's really two. there's the leadership that's been shown when pushed against the wall particularly by some of their financial sponsors, if you will, to compromise. and then there's this ba

. we talked about the fiscal cliff and the strategizing that newt gingrich did this morning on "meet the press." he said the process has become a complete diversion from what's really important. >> we're now going to spend 60 days or 90 days totally fixated on the media in the next big crisis. and the crisis will go down to the white house, and it will be secret meetings, and we'll produce 2,400 pages that no one will have read. >> he called it a distraction. newt gingrich criticizing the process. no one really seems happy with what happened or how it happened. is this how things are going to get done in washington these days, governing by crisis? let's start with you, ana. >> well, i agree with that part that he just said, this is absolutely not healthy governing. but, you know -- and i love newt gingrich, let me say that, he was in miami over the holidays, so he was having a little diversion himself. but i -- i suspect that when he was speaker he didn't like criticism of the type he's giving right now. he's a great ideas guy. not all of them are great ideas. some of his criticisms

, newt gingrich. we're back, and we have rung in 2013. but some republicans are acting like it's 1995 again. conservatives are actually talking about shutting down government in order to get their desired spending cuts. take a look at arizona congressman matt salmon on cbs yesterday. >> i believe that that government shutdown actually gave us the impetus as we went forward to push to work some real serious compromise. i think it drove bill clinton in a different direction, a very bipartisan direction. we also balanced the budget for the first time in 40 years in 1997, 1998, 1999. and when i left we had over a $230 billion surplus. this is with a democrat president, a republican congress. >> you think it's a good idea? >> i do. it's about time. >> you can spot a real bipartisan guy when he uses democrat as an adjective. it's fighting words. salon's joan walsh and david corn, not of the right either one of them, our msnbc political analysts, thanks. it's great to be back at work here. i've been on vacation. something never changes, joan, and your smiling face reminds me of it. the right
cain, newt gingrich, rick santorum. what do they have in common? they were leading in the polls. what's your prescription for the primary problem? >> my next endeavor, the nonpaying one, will be to head up the republican main street partnership to give comfort and cover to center right republicans and center left i guess democrats to stand up from the fringe groups on the right and left who have the courage to do the right thing. if governor rendell and i were in charge, we would have fixed this thing. >> thank you, steve la tourette and governor rendell. >> thank you. happy new year. >>> the house got around to voting on an aid package for the victims of hurricane sandy. the conservative club for growth promised to punish anyone who voted it. and 67 republicans voted it down. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> welcome back to "hardball." after a week which democrats and republicans were livid that they pulled the plug on hurricane sandy aid, the house voted on it today. overwhelmly approved $10 billion for flood insurance. >> reporter:. but not before a number of said it
. >> they have been in a weak position since election day. as gingrich learned in the early govern the cannot united states from one house of the congress and that is something that i think the newcomen enthusiastic, young, committed members of his congress do not understand. they only control one house of congress. you can stop them blocked, which is, i think something that you're conservative you'd want to do to prevent some of the more expansive liberal legislation from happening. the problem they have now with the debt ceiling is this is again playing roulette. what they have to do is they have to have a caucus united on a simple demand. whatever it is, $1 in spending cuts for every $1 in debt increases, a balanced budget amendment, but something. they also made a tactical throw back. if they do not, they will get rolled. advice is' thoughtful, but when asked if they would expect -- accept $10 for $1, everyone said it was unacceptable. we are in a position where we'd like to take tough positions but we do not like to make tough calls. >> i think we will see something inherently different.
as you'd like to keep it positive, isn't it time you get the old gingrich fist out and give romney a good old smack. >> henry truman when he was so far behind that gallup quit tooking polls mid-september, the crowd will yell out, give them hell, harry. and he said i just give them the truth and it hurts like hell. i think mitt romney is such clearly a moderate and he's done so many defensible things in the primary, i don't have to go negative. all i have to do is point out facts. i think the next few weeks will be a lot of fun, they will be very interesting. my only request with mitt is that he be honest with the country. >> america clearly needs someone with a good business brain. the economy remains in the tank. you went after mitt romney today about his work at bain capital. you called him agreed dee wall street so-and-so. should you be on that side of the coin given that you're a texas governor, a good businessman yourself? if mitt romney now wins the nomination, haven't you just landed barack obama a perfect stick to beat him with? >> well, there is a real difference between a ventur
it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and gave romney a good old smack? >> harry truman in his great re-election campaign when he was so far behind that gallup quit taking polls in mid september, went after dewey and crowds would yell out give him hell, harry. and he yelled back, no, i just tell the truth and it hurts like hell. i think romney's record is so bad, he's clearly a moderate, he's done so many things that are indefensible in the republican primary. it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it's indefensible. all i have to do is tell the truth. all i have to do is point out facts. i think the next few weeks will be a lot of fun. they'll be very interesting. my only request of mitt is that he be honest with the country. >> america clearly needs someone with a good business brain. the economy remains in the tank. you went after mitt romney today about his work at bain capital. you called him a greedy wall street so-and-so. was that the most reasonable position? calling him a vulture. should you be on that side of the coin considering y
to happen, but newt gingrich said yesterday and a lot of other republicans will say this eventually. called it a dead loser. no one wants to see the country default. they might be pushing on something that isn't quite fair and you will hear other republicans quietly saying this. and the president, of course, will take this. very convinced that the popular opinion is behind him. so you will see him like kristen said earlier take this on the road. spin this to people, this is on the heels of the fiscal cliff. the white house thinks the leverage is on their side. >> thank you, both. what do you think should be the top priority for the 113th congress? talk to me on twitter. my handle is @alexwitt. >>> weather officials just canceled a tsunami warning in alaska and parts of canada. following a big earthquake, the 7.7 tremor hit at midnight local time, it created a small wave, only about 6 inches tall and landed in sparsely populated port alexander. but some may see small sea level changes. the full forecast, is coming up. >>> the new report showing rich are getting richer and judd gregg on the d
a shutdown nou. it's not a good thing. even nut gingrich, the architect of the shutdown in the '90s says it's not good. it makes one wonder are the others speaking in a set or tone that they can use as an option and that that would be disastrous for this country and the economy. >> i think if the cliff negotiations taught us anything, you can't listen to the hardline luster this early in the game. if you'll look at how close we came with the last stand off, everybody takes their hardlined positions. mcconnell is not going to go out there on the lamb and shut down these hard liners at this point. he's going to want to go in there with a strong of position as he can, making as big of threats with his con frerns. &kind of push back against obama. at this stage of the game, he's not going to make a strong stand. >> now, nia merks alquia and former speaker was on "face the nation. and she said she would use the 14th amendment to avoid a shut down. listen to h. >> if i were president, i would use the 14th amendment that says -- >> you would just go ahead and do it. >> okay. right. >> what do you
. host: this is from sasha. did president clinton invite speaker gingrich? guest: we know that he invited him on an airplane ride and gingrich didn't like it so he stalked out of the back of the airplane. without knowing with 100% certainty i think that there probably was a time when he was at camp david, but again i'm not going to swear about it. host: chris joins us from alabama. you can guess who he is supporting. does the president have a constitutional role in settling disputes between branches of congress? guest: he does in the sense that he signs the legislation that comes in. so ultimately he doesn't really have a role in negotiating. he has an informal role in negotiating between the house and senate on legislation but it is not a formal role. his formal role comes in whether he wants to sign or veto legislation. but throughout tradition presidents have been involved in negotiations for legislation that comes up for his signature. host: spending and taxes came up in the weekly addresses. dave camp, who is recovering from cancer and has been deemed as cured, is the chair of the ho
lightbulbs for the black light and turn your party into a groovy shack. newt gingrich was good at this. inviting broad, diverse of people. make sure everyone doesn't already know each other. the democrats need to continue pursuing the diverse big tense coalition that reelected president obama and not just in solidly blue territory. not to be forgotten, music. the fuel to keep a good ranger in full throttle. start with a mix of low key tunes, pumping up the volume and getting the tempo gradually going until you reach the height of the party with a song that gets everyone on the dance floor. last but not least, make sure you have food, lots and lots of it to keep the dancers energized. the democratic party has to provide training, connections, opportunities to come together for networking and money. money, money, money, money to pay for all of it. all that's left to do is figure out the democratic sound track for 2014 and beyond. voila, you have the recipe that would make martha stewart proud. they would have put together a party that people will still be talking about for years and deca
but let's start working on this problem. >> let me ask you this. newt gingrich warned fellow republicans you may want to get the spending cuts be u if you're going to use the debt ceilings and hold them hostage he says that is, quote/unquote, a dead loser. here he is. >> in the end gloirk what's going to happen. the whole financial system is going to come into washington by television and say, oh, my god, this would be a gigantic heart attack, the entire economy of the world will collapse and you guys can't be responsible and they'll cave. >> so are republicans making a strategic mistake using the debt ceiling as leverage since we all know they will end up having to raise it. >> they will have to raise it. the president will have to raise it and the debt creeling is not the problem. the problem is the debt and the spending that's driving the debt. the number one thing is to avoid, a, the notion that speaker boehner can trot down to the white house and somehow we can solve the nation's problems or, b, that we want do this at the 11th hour at all. instead we want the president and our cong
to do, cutting out the co-equal branch of congress. and newt gingrich is here to talk about the potential for power grab. "on the record" starts now. >> a bunch of liberal democrats worried about guns talking about using executive orders, what could it possibly be about? a gun grab. >> the president is going to pact through executive orders, executive action can be taken. >> if you have a president who thinks that executive orders trump the constitution, it doesn't really matter how many americans think that the constitution guarantees them the right to own a gun. >> the latest on a gruesome murder trial underway in phoenix right now. >> she already said, i did it, so the only thing that the jury is trying to determine here is was this really self-defense. >> how he treated her in a s subserviant way and the things they say don't portray him as a altar boy. >> he was of driving a car shot at him and sped away. >> family members plotted to do this. >> the widow of the million dollar lottery winner says she has no idea who poisoned her husband with cyanide. >> and the purpose
or five years and not fight over them every time they come up and newt gingrich said it was a debt loser for the republicans to choose this as an issue. i'm saying the president should not have one of these last-minute showdowns over the debt ceiling, but we should speak in honest and i think complete terms about dealing with this deficit. it truly is a challenge we haven't faced as much as we should. >> so taking the president out of it, do you think that you could agree to spending cuts, provided you were amenable to whatever the cuts were, in order to get the debt ceiling raised? >> i can tell you that sounds like a bargain, and it sounds like a deadline that i don't want to see. what i'd rather see is a bipartisan approach starting soon, as soon as we return, between democrats, republicans and the house and the senate, talking about where we go, for example in, tax reform. there's money to be saved in tax reform. there's money to be saved in other areas. debbie stabna, head of the senate ag committee found a way to save $23 billion in spending we don't need in the farm program and re
gingrich obviously knows a lot about this and a lot about government shutdowns. >> yes. >> he warned fellow republicans today that, all right, you guys may want to get the spending cuts, but if you're going to use the debt ceiling and hold people hostage because you know you have to increase that, he says that is, quote/unquote, a dead loser. here he is. >> in the end, you know it's going to happen. the whole national financial system is going to come into washington by television and say, oh, my god, this would be a gigantic heart attack, the entire economy of the world will collapse, you guys can't be responsible, and they'll cave. >> so are republicans making a strategic mistake here, doug, to even use the debt ceiling as leverage since we all know they will end up having to raise it? >> they will have to raise it. the president's going to have to raise it, and the debt ceiling is not the problem. the problem is the debt and the spending that's driving the debt. and so the number one thing is to avoid, "a," the notion that speaker boehner can trot down to the white house and somehow we c
